1.130 Signature by Relative of a Military Owner (VC §1651)

The registration application for a nonresident vehicle being registered to an owner who is in the U.S. Armed Forces may be signed by the owner’s spouse or other close relative. The procedure in such cases is:

  • The individual’s signature must be countersigned by the relative and must indicate the relationship to the individual. Example: Mark Johnson by Mary Johnson, wife.
  • Mark the application “Owner Member of Armed Forces”.

This procedure is applicable for the signature on the Nonresident Military Exemption Statement (REG 5045) form.
